Happy Veteran's Day

In Remembrance Of Those Who Served

by sweetwoodjax

Red poppies scattered on the ground
in remembrance of those who served,
and gave their all in battle
so freedom could be preserved.

Honor should be given to them,
not just on Veteran's day.
So many soldiers lost in battle.
I've seen their family's dismay.

I recognize your sacrifice.
Your fight for freedom had a cost.
So many lost on foreign soil
so our freedoms would not be lost.


Inspired by elpsog's poem and by picture from bing images.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
